- The Original Squatty Potty – Made in U.S.A. As seen on Shark Tank and The Howard Stern Show
- The Squatty Potty Original has 2 sizes that work perfectly with ANY standard (14″”-15.5″) or comfort height (16″”-18″) toilet. If you are a new squatter, the 7″ is a great place to start and if you are limber or consider yourself an advanced squatter, a 9″” Squatty Potty will work best.
- The Squatty Potty may feel different at first, but the body quickly adjusts and the new healthy way of eliminating quickly becomes second nature. For most people, the difference is immediate while for some it takes about a week to adjust, relax and get things moving.
- Doctor recommended / endorsed, Strong & durable, Family-friendly
- Made of durable hard Polyurethane plastic, easy to clean.
Helped our son get off of Miralax
My son has encopresis–chronic constipation. For the past two years, he’s been on one, sometimes, two capfulls of Miralax every day. While that helped his chronic constipation, the thought of him being on it for life was rather daunting. We decided to try the squatty potty to see if it would help. The results, in only a few days, have been remarkable. Even with the MIralax, it used to take him 20 minutes to have a BM. Now, he’s in and out in 5 minutes and tells us that his BMs have never been so big. After a day, we even stopped the Miralax and he’s had a BM every day.Drug free miracle in this Mom’s opinion!
Yes, this piece of plastic works
I went searching for something like this as I sorta was inclined to put my feet up anyways. Now that I have it, I love it. It feels very natural to me. I got the 9 inch b/c our toilet is high and I’m flexible. Evacuation is more complete, hence stool is not stuck in the colon losing water and voila, you are no longer constipated. You feel better and since you are not straining, voila, no more hemorrhoids too. I was never into fiber products and colace didn’t work for me. Between this and surgery to remove endometriosis, I no longer have to take a magnesium citrate capsule daily to go.
Best potty training tool EVER!!!
Been awhile since I’ve take the time to write a product review….but WOW I have finally found the PERFECT potty training tool for our family!! It’s called the Squatty Potty…don’t laugh too hard- it’s actually for adults who have GI issues..we’ll put it that way! BUT I needed something that would allow our almost 4 yr old to still go to the bathroom without having stuff in his way and I’m soo tired of cleaning seats and other potties PLUS I don’t have a whole lot of room in our bathroom. So I got this thing in the mail and about freaked out at the size!! BUT it actually is the first product in a LONG time that I have found that the designers seriously put some thought into!! There is not a SINGLE thing I would change!! They offer 2 heights and since our guy who has almost potty trained himself is only 19 months old and 23 lbs- I got the 9" stool. He can climb up on his own and even stand to pee..although we’re just sitting for now- but his feet rest on the stool so no need for a seat- he can sit forwards or backwards. And the BEST part…I have NOTHING to clean!! This stool unlike some others I was looking at has an opening in the front so you can stand to pee in front of it…ie the 4 yr old AND it has "grooves" for your legs so it’s not in any adults way either and it is completely contoured to the base of the toilet.
bought this for potty training
it’s still a little too high for my daughter to climb up on by herself, but she will probably start using it often when she gets bigger. Very compact and looks better in the bathroom than an ugly disney princess stool
Doesn’t go far enough
I loved the idea of the Squatty Potty so much that I bought one for each of our three bathrooms. And so far, so good. I gladly recommend it to anyone with–or without–GI issues. Using the toilet has never felt better.If there’s anything I’d change about the Squatty Potty, I’d make the 9″ stool even higher. I’ve used squat-style toilets in Asia, which bring you closer to a more “natural” angle of elimination. And while leaning forward using the Squatty Potty helps relax things a little bit more, another inch or two would be an improvement. Who knows, maybe there’s room for an 11″ Squatty Potty Pro model.That said, the Squatty Potty is definitely worth the cost of admission. Even if it is just an oddly shaped plastic stool, it works.
just give it a try already!
This is such an odd thing to write a review for, but, seriously, you need to try this!I actually always preferred squatting, despite growing up in a Western house with normal toilets, and while it can be difficult squatting on the actual toilet seat, I could manage just fine…until I got pregnant. With the weight gain and balance change, I can no longer safely balance on the toilet itself and was glad to find this toilet stool. I got the 9″ since I’m already accustomed to the position, and it works great. There is a bit of a learning curve, but it’s still easy to use and really helps. I’m well into my second trimester, and I’ve had no problems with constipation or hemorrhoids, which I know are common pregnancy complaints, and I really believe that being able to continue squatting for elimination is what makes the difference.I know, I know, it’s an odd thing, and perhaps weird to try, but seriously, if you ever have any issues with elimination, just give this a try, as it’s pretty cheap and super easy to use.
The perfect height for our 3.5 year old to use the potty. Sits out of the way so it never has to be moved. very well made. I know they market this more for adults, but it really is invaluable as a child’s potty stool!
Pretty much all the benefits described for this are true. Glad we purchased it. We have a standard size toilet and went with the bigger stool and I’m happy with the height. I also like that it tucks under the toilet if you don’t want to use it and its not in the way.
We love it! I had been wanting to buy this squatty potty for some time but it wasn’t until potty training that I thought I now have even more of an excuse! It’s been great for it’s main intend purpose and potty training. I also am 7 months pregnant and love using it to help prepare for labor and I plan on using it during my labor as well at home.The 9" works on both our toilets however the higher one is defiantly more comfortable.My husband was in love from the first squat!!
